MSNBC announced Thursday that they have scooped up former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, and will give her a 6 p.m. show called "For The Record" — a name very similar to her former show on Fox, "On The Record."

MSNBC announced the move on their official Twitter account:

This ends the speculation of what Van Susteren's next career move would be after she left Fox News in September. She quit her FNC gig after the cable outlet settled a sexual harassment claim by Fox host Gretchen Carlson against former Fox News chief Roger Ailes for $20 million.

Van Susteren had hinted at the "tempting offer" from MSNBC in January:

This marks the second popular female anchor from Fox News defecting to the NBC family after Megyn Kelly announced her move on Tuesday. Like Van Susteren, Kelly has also made accusations of sexual harassment against her former boss Roger Ailes, which many believe pushed her towards leaving the cable news giant. Fox has tapped Tucker Carlson to replace her at the 9 PM hour, setting up a very interesting evening cable news battle between the former Fox News colleagues.
